Lets you gaze upon other creatures from afar.

Description

This ritual will give the priest a single glimpse of the location of the target, now including the exits from the room, which can be very useful. Unlike the crystal balls of old, it does not provide continuing descriptions of the target's actions. If successful, the target is not alerted in any way. It is however resistable with de.se and a failed attempt will be spotted by the target, though the perpetrator will not be revealed.

Incredibly useful in the pk world, it will not work if the target is hiding and you would not have the necessary perception to see them if you were in the same location.

Help File

Longsight gives you a vision of the room where the target is standing. It requires a holy symbol consecrated to your deity to perform.

Example

> perform longsight on sojan

You utter a quick prayer.
You cover your eyes.
You briefly see a vision.

This is a small, cramped room with a large, roaring fire blazing in the forge on the east wall of the room. There are various assorted tools of metalwork scattered around the fire and hanging on the walls, most notably the anvil in the centre of the room. The smithy is obviously very busy as there is a large, dirty order book lying open on a small desk near the door.
There is one obvious exit: south.
Sojan, Baldwin the Disemboweler MacAvrik and Baldwin's apprentice are standing here.
A cash safe is in the wall and a piece of embroidered tartan is hanging on the wall.

Messages

When you fail due to the target successfully resisting you, you see this message:

You attempt to peek in on <target>, but find yourself floating in a grey void instead.

When you fail because the target is hiding (beyond your perception), you see this message:

You cannot find a target for this ritual.

If you try longsighting a non-unique npc (or one with a non-unique name), you see this message:

You receive a vision of half a hundred <target> spiralling like a kaleidoscope.

If the npc isn't loaded or doesn't exist, you see either this message:

You do not know a ritual called longsight on <target>.

N.B. The opposite is NOT necessarily true: if you get this message, it does not necessarily mean the target hasn't loaded!

or this message:

You get a vision of a grey blur.

When you detect a longsight attempt you see this message:

You feel a prickling sensation at the back of your neck, like someone is watching you.
